AGM: Presidents Report 26.11.2021

Toongabbie & Districts Junior Soccer Club - Est 1953 "The Demons"

To all Members, Players, Coaches and fellow Committee members.

The 2021 soccer season was a very challenging year on many fronts and unfortunately due to Covid 19 we were unable to finish the season.

I would like to personally thank our 2021 Committee who all did an amazing job not only keeping our club going but actually showing growth for the season. We were up on both senior and junior team numbers with a jump from 1 to 3 senior teams and from 22 to 25 junior teams from 2020.

A big thank you also to all our wonderful Coaches and Managers who give up their time on the cold winter nights and Saturday mornings nurturing and improving our playing group, this was highlighted by the fact that when the season was terminated we had 10 teams well in contention in their respective age groups.

A special thank you to the morning crew of chief Paul, Brian, Rocky & Co who turn up in the dark every week to ensure our fields look immaculate and second to none ready for game day.

I would also like to give special mention to Dermot McCoy and family who took on the task of not only keeping the canteen going but in fact making it into a success and Dermot was also the driving force behind the clubs successful grant applications and not to forget also our IT guy and involved heavily with registrations.

To Colleen our new Treasurer also a big thanks for your valued contribution in running our books and it is very pleasing we are financially stable heading into the 2022 season.

Jono Frendo did a great job again as our Club Secretary and Club Registrar and Senior teams Co-Ordinator.

All of you know Rocky who really is the heart and soul of our little  club and works tirelessly in every facet of running the club and looks after all the teams as our SSF Co-Ordinator and many other roles.

I would also like to take the opportunity to thank all our sponsors who heavily contribute to the success and financial stability of our club. With our major sponsor again this season being our long term sponsor The Toongabbie Sports & Bowling Club.

We also need to thank our Junior Refs who did a great job again this year improving their craft with every game they referee.

And lastly a big thanks to all the Mums and Dads who support the club and bring their kids down to play week in week out.

I look forward to a prosperous and hopefully uninterrupted 2022 season and can’t wait to see our teams back in action.

Yours sincerely

Steve Dollin

Club President
